During a tour of the Northside recently one of the longtime shop owners refer to the North Salina Corridor as “Little Italy,” while a tour guide cited changing demographics for calling the neighborhood “The Gateway to Many Nations.” The tour was facilitated by Northside Up and SUNY-ESF.

Nate Hommel says that streets are public spaces. During a workshop and didactic session at Assumption Church, the Director of planning and design for University City District (UCD) told residents, students, and developers to hack, tinker, analyze and design to help transform spaces and help people love where they live. When you love where you live, he said, you start caring a lot more about things that go on and you become more involved.

Hommel is pictured at a the Freedom Garden on N. Townsend, which is a few stone throw away from where he was born (St. Joseph’s Hospital).

He is a graduate of SUNY ESF and has worked for UCD since 2012.
